A dream is a wish that your heart makes. Simply, a dream can drive you forward, motivate you, and keep you focused. A dream was what Jill and Richard Hill were hoping for, and it came true for them in Maui.
Meeting years ago, it was clear to see that marriage was in the stars for Jill and Richard. Soon after they began dating though, Jill was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. Faced with this hardship, Jill persevered and remained strong in her fight. There, unwavering and always by her side, was Richard. His love and support and Jill’s resiliency in the face of her illness served to strengthen their bond. Faced with what doctors explained was the end of her fight, Jill rallied, with her final dream being to marry her beloved Richard.
Engaged on January 1, Jill applied to Dreams for Veterans, a foundation responsible for providing dreams to those who have served. They were honored to assist Jill and Richard, and contacted Lorrie Betsill Nielson of Maui’s Angels. Happy to help, wedding plans began, and soon the excited couple were being whisked away to Maui from their home in Dallas, Oregon.
Baby Beach in Lahaina provided the perfect spot for their romantic wedding. Waves softly lapping at the peaceful shoreline were accentuated by the touching music of Kani Masoe. Shiny, colossal palm leaves cascading over the brilliant blue waters completed the stunning scenery at this intimate beach. Jill chose roses for her special day. The bouquet and floral circle, designed in house by Maui’s Angels, included pinks and mauve with golden bursts. Jill was pampered by Maui Bridal Hair and Makeup, and was radiant as she made her way to Richard, who awaited her on the sands.
At sunset, Peter Dagupion officiated the ceremony, while Jill and Richard lovingly recited their vows. Mariah Milan Photography and One Motion Films graciously caught these intimate moments. The evening was poetic — with a resplendent sunset, beautiful vows, and a wonderful couple who are the epitome of love and devotion.
Marriage is the beginning of a journey for most couples. The bliss, the excitement, and the start of a life long adventure is what makes it so magical. Maui sunsets and pristine beaches lure couples from near and far to begin their adventures here. Jill and Richard’s journey was special, celebrating the end of their journey together and one of Maui’s Angels most romantic. Life with love is the ultimate for many couples; but facing adversity can be a disheartening challenge.
Jill and Richard have met their challenges with optimism, strength, and grace. Richard has provided a strong shoulder to lean on for Jill. Their love has been tested, their commitment to each other proven, and their Hawaiian wedding was a testament to their enduring dedication to one another.
“Someday you will find the one who will watch every sunrise with you until the sunset of your life.” -Unknown
Jill and Richard, from everyone at Intimate Weddings Maui and Maui’s Angels, we thank you for your love story, for sharing your very special day with us, and for showing us just what is most important in life. Our hearts and prayers remain with you, and we wish you all the very best.
The majestic beaches, sparkling waters, and breathtaking sunsets of Maui bring loving couples from near and far to celebrate true Hawaiian aloha. Kevin and Alison not only shared in the breathtaking beaches for their special day, but experienced true fairytale-like romance as they made their way through Honolua Bay Forest.
Their intimate beach wedding began on a whimsical walk. Tropical and brilliant green, it provided an ethereal backdrop for the couple, who shared special moments along secluded paths before they wed. The rich greens of Maui forest surrounding the couple enhanced the soft colour palette Alison chose for her wedding day. Her bouquet included peonies and roses in soft shades of pink, white, and gold. Adding a few brilliant sprigs of bleeding hearts and dianthus, Sunya’s Flowers perfectly completed the florals with lamb’s ear and succulents.
Reaching Ironwoods beach, with its serene stretch of coastline and beautiful, jagged lava rock, Kevin and Alison were serenaded by the inspiring music of Kalani Miles. With just three guests, their nuptials defined the warmth, tranquility, and intimacy they had hoped for. The completion of their vows, officiated by Peter Dagupion, were sealed with a kiss, then Alison and Kevin stole a moment together on a quiet walk along the beach.
The island of Maui brought this happy couple to paradise from Ontario, Canada. Their breathtaking photos, captured by Caitlin Cathey Photography, make it easy to see why. From the whimsy of Honolua Bay Forest, to the privacy of Ironwoods beach, their day was completed with stunning scenery atop the lava rock that surrounded them. Waves crashing, a majestic sunset, and radiant natural beauty, Alison and Kevin truly had it all for their intimate beach wedding.
Congratulations from all of us at Intimate Weddings Maui!
With the new year upon us we were fortunate to be part of the nuptials between Karen and Mathew. Traveling to the beautiful island of Maui all the way from Australia, Karen and Mathew’s Intimate Beach Wedding was truly romantic. With the picturesque backdrop only Hawaii can provide, the couple were able to capture the ambiance they dreamed of with heartfelt touches, making their day unique and especially sentimental.
Karen’s beautiful make up by Mei Li Autumn was subtle and sweet, and the floral headpiece was the perfect addition to her soft wavy hair. The gorgeous in house florals by Intimate Weddings Maui brought together the final touches, and the creamy pinks and peaches created the perfect charm for the sunset vows.
Their gorgeous sunset ceremony on the sands of Ironwood Beach were officiated by Ernest Pua’a. As the sun began to set, the couple, and their intimate gathering of loved ones, were serenaded by Kani Masoe and his ukelele. Karen and Mathew stood in a special butterfly circle designed by Andrea Padilla, and with the completion of their vows, the couple released monarch butterflies into the sunset skies. After they said “I Do,” the newlyweds stole away for photos along the quiet sands and rocks, wonderfully captured by Caitlin Cathey Photography. The evening was completed as they joined their small gathering of ten guests to enjoy a wonderful reception at the Hyatt Regency, attending the enchanting Drums of the Pacific Lu’au.
We were so thril led to be a part of your special day! Thank you, Karen and Mathew! Congratulations and all the very best from Intimate Weddings Maui!
Tori and Al traveled all the way from Canada to elope on the incredible beaches of Maui! Their wedding was in early November right in the middle of the first big winter swell. The waves took over most of the beach which brought us to hold Tori and Al’s ceremony on top of a gorgeous grassy knoll overlooking Ironwoods Beach and Kapalua.
There was a little bit of mist in the sky which made this elopement even more romantic! Tori and Al were married by Ernest Pua’a at sunset at Ironwoods Beach in Kapalua.
Tori’s Hair and Make Up were flawlessly done by Chrissy Swink of Make Up Maui and Hair, and Tori’s flowers were done by Sunya’s Flowers!
Thank you so much to Tori and Al for trusting Intimate Weddings Maui with your Elopement. It truly was an honor to be part of such an extraordinary Maui beach wedding!!
One of our favorite weddings to date is the gorgeous Intimate Maui Wedding of Aiste and Andy! This stunning couple and their 6 guests joined us from California. These two showed us that even with a guest count of only the people closest to you, you can still have an absolutely breathtaking ceremony!!
Aiste wore an orchid in her hair, and her bouquet was dazzled with white hydrangeas, white orchids and white roses. Her hair and make up was flawless thanks to I am U’i!! The special day was captured by Angie Diaz Photography, and we couldn’t be more thrilled to see these incredible photos!!
The couple was married on the west side of Maui, on the grassy knoll at Merriman’s, overlooking Kapalua Bay, in Lahaina. They rented a simple bamboo arch with white drapery from Hawaiian Style Event Rentals, and Sunya’s Flowers did a beautiful arch treatment that was consistent with Aiste’s bouquet. This ceremony design was classic and romantic, perfect for this sweet, intimate elopement in Hawaii.
Marvin Tavega Music serenaded the couple with his ukulele before and after their nuptials, which set the tone for the sweet, Hawaiian ceremony officiated by Ernest Pua’a. Following the ceremony the couple dined at Merriman’s on Kapalua Bay with their loved ones.
Thank you so much to Aiste and Andy for allowing us to make your dream wedding come to life, and congratulations to the beautiful couple from all of us at Intimate Weddings Maui!!!
With it’s palm trees and ocean breeze, Hawaii is often known for intimate beach elopements and weddings. Today, we are so excited to share with you the wedding of Kate and Mark, where they traded in sandy feet, for a gorgeous white sand beach backdrop. The grassy knoll at Merriman’s on Kapalua Bay was the perfect spot for this sweet Intimate Beach Wedding in Maui.
The lovely couple was staying at the Ritz Carlton Kapalua where Caitlin Cathey captured stunning photos of the Bride and Groom getting ready. Once the couple arrived at Merriman’s on Kapalua Bay they did a sweet first look on the grassy knoll overlooking Kapalua Bay. The Bride’s hair and makeup was flawless thanks to MeiLi Autumn Beauty, and her vibrant florals by Sunya’s Flowers perfectly suited this Intimate Beach Wedding in paradise. Ernest Pua’a officiated the marriage between Kate and Mark, and what an honor it was for us to be part of such a gorgeous ceremony.
After the ceremony, the couple snuck down to the rocky landing beneath the grass for romantic sunset photos as newly weds.
Following photos, the couple shared their first meal together as husband and wife at the Merriman’s restaurant, overlooking the stunning scenery where the couple was just married.
Congratulations Kate and Mark from all of us at Intimate Beach Weddings Maui!
